HASH(0x9e01a750) out of 5 stars Civil War novel Aug. 11 2005
By Bomojaz - Published on
This short novel is set in the Mohawk Valley of NY during the Civil War. Abner Beech, once highly regarded by the community, hates abolitionists and the idea of the Civil War - he wants it to stop: he's a Copperhead (Northerners who thought the war against the South could not be won and therefore thought a negotiated peace should be made with them). His neighbors come to despise him and even burn his house down. Through the words of his chief enemy's daughter, Abner has a change of heart (this is the weakest part of the book). The entire story is told through the eyes of Abner's adopted 13-year-old son, a most fortunate stylistic decision on Frederic's part: the boy is quite perceptive and very funny. An excellent novel by an author who deserves better recognition today.
HASH(0x9dd6d348) out of 5 stars Four Stars for the Book, Three for the Kindle June 10 2015

Very interesting perspective of a Copperhead living in a predominantly abolitionist area. Good, period detail, good plot but perhaps too happy an ending to be realistic.

The Kindle edition is a joke, typos galore, numerals stuck into pages with no apparent reason, sentence breaks, and paragraph shifts. It's all too obvious that a human eye never edited it, it was all left to a computer.

HASH(0x9dc6afe4) out of 5 stars Well worth the time Sept. 7 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I could rate this book lower because of the editing but I am more concerned with the story it tells than the technical problems. Now that I have read the book, I will watch the movie. Divisions among neighbors. War not entirely popular with every individual. Hatred developed and wicked acts flow.

A good reminder that kindness and love for your neighbor is a higher goal than agreement over politics.

I like the book, but there are way too many typos.
This should have been proof-read before release.

I wanted to read the book before I see the movie.

I'm writing about the Kindle version.

This historical novel gave me a great sense of what this time in our country was like as it was written from a regular person's perspective. It gave me a great insight into the moment. it made it real.
